It is always fascinating to see when ideas and philosophies, new or old, begin to gain traction. Specifically in golf it seems that all it takes is some PGA spotlight to let loose the domino effect. To me, this is the exact situation going on with counterbalancing in putters. We have seen a wave of counterbalanced releases from multiple companies in the last year and frankly, I love it. From the smallest company to the largest, you name them and they have at least been tinkering in offering some sort of counterbalanced putter to their customers. That being said, I was extremely excited when SeeMore announced that they would be making their way into this.
SeeMore on Counterbalanced Putters
SeeMore Counter Balanced Putters are the next evolution in longer than standard length putters, offering the golfer the game improvement benefits of a belly putter in a non-anchored design. The counter balanced feature actually allows the golfer to realize the advanced stabilization benefits of a longer and heavier putter without feeling like the putter is too long or too heavy. This is achieved when the golfer, by design, chokes down on the longer and heavier grip, effectively using the added weights at both ends of the putter for added balance to ensure a smooth, repeatable, effective stroke.
SeeMore’s Counter Balanced putters are designed to be optimal at around 38 inches for most golfers, typically 3-4 inches longer than a standard length putter would be. Counter balanced putters are custom built at SeeMore’s Tennessee factory with a minimum of 25 grams of extra weight added to the putter head, in the form of a pure milled internal hosel. This also allows for any time customization of lie or loft as needed. The extra head weight and the extra weight of the longer and heavier shaft is all balanced out by the fact that the special 18 inch grip weighs 125 grams. SeeMore Counter Balanced putters can be customized as desired to whatever length the golfer wishes.
